Gleb Vyatkin '85

Anniversary Exhibition Opening

The opening of the personal anniversary exhibition of one of the brightest and most famous Volgograd artists Gleb Vyatkin took place today in the central hall of the Volgograd Museum of Fine Arts. Contrary to the expectations, this is not a retrospective exhibition. The main part of show consists of more than fifty new works created by the artist over the past five years, which are only complemented by canvases from earlier stages of his artistic career. In the newest paintings, the artist once again demonstrates his creative freedom and, at the same time, loyalty to his chosen path.

“Gleb Vyatkin has always worked without regard for authorities, the market and fashion. This is how he has always been and remains,” Varvara Ozerina, director of the Volgograd Mashkov Museum of Fine Arts, opened the exhibition with these words. She said that now the paintings and graphic works of Gleb Vyatkin are represented in the State Russian Museum, the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, the Perm State Art Gallery, the Saratov Radishchev State Museum and other public and private collections. The artist Gleb Vyatkin has earned undoubted recognition. The Volgograd Museum of Fine Arts has six works of the artist, which the museum is proud of.
